Members or their guests are responsible for everything on the suite inventory sheet and must return a signed copy of this document to the Front Desk no later than the morning of the day after check acknowledging that the inventory is complete. Failure to do so may result in you being charged for any missing items.
All Members and /or their guests are requested to complete the check out procedure and vacate their suites by 11.00 AM on the Saturday or Sunday their interval period ends. A timely check out is necessary to facilitate the cleaning and service of the suites before the arrival of the next interval check in.

If the condition of the suite does not improve, any charges to make it presentable for the next occupants shall be billed to the Member or their guests for the additional labor required and shall be payable upon departure.
CLEANING AND PEST CONTROL
Except on Sundays and Official Holidays when a limited service is provided, the occupied suites shall receive housekeeping service consisting of general dusting, trash removal, cleaning bathrooms and a change of towels and linen as required but at least once weekly.
Annually, the Resort budgets for a monthly service in an attempt to control pests in our tropical environment. The Pest Control Company advises us that most roaches are brought into the Resort by means of soft drink and beer cases. Sodas and beer are available at the minimart at the Resort but if you purchase these commodities outside, we ask that you leave the cartons in the hallways to be disposed of by Housekeeping.
DAMAGE AND LITTERING
Members or their guests shall be responsible for any damage to the suite and its contents or common areas within the Resort and shall pay for such damages upon departure. In addition, it is expected that Members or their guests will refrain from littering the common areas including the beach.
The use of and/or trafficking in any type of dangerous drugs is considered illegal in Aruba and jail sentences can be up to ten (10) years. Bail is not known in our laws, and can therefore not be granted. The Resort expects our Members and their guests to abide by the laws of our Country. Please notify Management or Security of any concerns on this matter.
An interval week runs only from Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday. Members desiring different arrival or departure schedules may do so only with confirmation from the Reservations department and, based on availability, will be subject to regular members’ discounted room rates for the period in question. There will be no credit for unused days in the interval period.
Occupancy for an interval period will not be allowed if the Member is in financial default (outstanding maintenance fees, special assessments plus any portion of late payment penalties levied). Failure to be current after being notified by the Resort will lead to repossession of the suite.
